Motor Image, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles across nine countries in Asia, today launched Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology at the Singapore Motorshow 2018.

The new technology will complement Subaru’s other core technologies such as the Boxer Engine, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Subaru Global Platform.

EyeSight is a driving support system that uses a range of functions to assist the driver, providing a safer and comfortable driving experience.

Adding confidence to every trip, EyeSight uses stereo cameras to identify the surrounding vehicles, obstacles, traffic lanes and other items.

Under the right circumstances, it will apply the brakes or reduce the throttle to minimise the risk of a collision.

* Subaru footnote: EyeSight is a driving support system which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. When equipped with EyeSight, all 2017 Subaru models received the highest possible 2017 rating for front crash prevention by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the United States.

The 6 main functions of EyeSight are described below.

1. Pre-Collision Braking

Pre-Collision Braking System warns the driver with a buzzer and a light on the dash.

If the driver still does not take evasive action to avoid the collision, the system can automatically apply the brakes to reduce any impact or, if possible, prevent the collision.

If the driver takes evasive action to avoid a collision, it helps prevent it from happening.

* Subaru footnote: Pre-Collision Braking System may not work in all situations. Depending on the speed difference from objects, the object’s height and other conditions, every situation may not meet the necessary conditions for EyeSight to work optimally.

2. Adaptive Cruise Control

Aside from maintaining the speed as the traditional cruise control set by the driver, Adaptive Cruise Control adjusts the speed to keep a set distance from the lead vehicle by monitoring the distance and the difference of the speed.

“We are thrilled to finally launch the award-winning Subaru EyeSight technology at the Singapore Motorshow 2018. EyeSight completes Subaru’s core technology pillars to present a wholesome and attractive package for customers who are looking for the highest standards of safety, driving performance and comfort in a car,” said Glenn Tan, Managing Director, Tan Chong International Limited.

It adjusts the engine, transmission, and brake to keep your speed in line with the traffic flow.

3. Pre-Collision Throttle Management

When EyeSight sees an obstacle in front of you and you put the vehicle in Drive instead of Reverse, Pre-Collision Throttle Management sounds several short beeps, turns on a flashing indicator and cuts the engine output to help you avoid a frontal collision.

4. Lane Departure Warning

When travelling at speeds of 50 km/h or more and you drift to the edge of your lane and begin to depart your lane without signalling, it warns you before you leave your lane

5. Lane Sway Warning

Lane Sway Warning helps you stay alert with a buzzer and a flashing indicator.

It only activates at speeds of approximately 60 km/h or more.

6. Lead Vehicle Start Alert

When you’re at a stop and EyeSight senses that traffic has started moving again, Lead Vehicle Start Alert prompts the driver to take action with a buzzer and a flashing indicator.
